DAY 2
Breakfast at the hotel.
Morning / Rovaniemi City Tour & Santa Claus Village, 3 hours
Included
Once we pick you up from your hotel lobby, you will first embark on a city tour around Rovaniemi and then head on to Santa Claus Village, where the man himself can be found every single day of the year taking care of his life mission – to enhance the well-being of children and the kindness of grown-ups as well as to spread the message of love and the goodwill of Christmas Spirit around the globe. Apart from meeting the hero of the day, you will also have a chance to cross the Arctic Circle, which runs across the village, send Christmas greetings to your dearest from the official Santa’s Post Office, and visit numerous boutique shops that showcase Lappish craftsmanship at its finest.
Afternoon / Self-Guided Visit to Arktikum Museum, 1-2 hours
Included
You will be brought to the museum once you finish your tour at Santa Claus Village. The guide will provide you with the tickets and explain how to find the way to your hotel when you are done with your visit. Arktikum is conveniently located very close to the town centre within a short walking distance from all hotels offered in the package.
Arktikum is a science centre and museum that lets you experience northern nature, culture, and history up close. Combined with unique architecture, this is an essential sight to visit when staying in Rovaniemi.
Evening / Northern Lights Hunt by car/bus, 3 hours
105 € / adult
85 € / child 4-12 y.
Eager to see the northern lights? This adventure ups your chances of witnessing this extraordinary natural phenomenon. Absorb the silent winter setting and stay warm with a hot drink and sausages sizzled up on a campfire. Look for the lights and – if luck is on your side – enjoy a memorable display of the luminescent ribbons as they dance overhead.

DAY 3
Breakfast at the hotel.
Morning / Reindeer Farm Visit & Reindeer Safari, 3 hours
129 € / adult
99 € / child 4-12 y.
Witness the life of reindeer first-hand as they go about their daily work and relaxation. Take up the unique opportunity to sit an exam on handling a reindeer sled and receive your special “driver’s license” (available for all ages). Have a seat in the sled and you are off! Getting cold? Warm yourself up around a bonfire in a nearby hut and enjoy a cup of hot juice. Later, in a traditional Lapp hut you will be “baptized” according to all rules of the North.
Afternoon / Snowmobile safari around Rovaniemi, 3.5 hours
135 € / adult / 2 pax per snowmobile*
195 € / adult / 1 pax per snowmobile*
89 € / child 4-14 y. in sledge**
This safari is a good option for those who want to get a real feeling for snowmobiling. Even close to Rovaniemi centre, the wilderness surrounds you. We take it easy when departing from the base and ensure that you are comfortable with the snowmobile and make a few stops on the way. Feel free to ask your guide about snowmobiling in general or for some tricks on how to drive, unless you are busy taking pictures of the arctic beauty around you.
* Only a person possessing a valid driving license is allowed to drive a snowmobile.
** Children under 140 cm may participate in the main safari in a sledge only. Taller children may be allowed to travel as a passenger on a snowmobile provided they are strong enough to hold on tight (to be defined by the guide upon departure, full price applies).

DAY 4
Breakfast at the hotel.
Morning / Husky Farm Visit & Husky Safari, 3 hours
135 € / adult
109 € / child 4-12 y.
Professional dog-breeders will introduce you to the life of the huskies on the farm, and you will complete a brief course of “a young dog-breeder”. Following that, you will set off on your 5 km (15-20 min.) safari on dog sleds that hold 1-3 people. Should you wish, you can make a photo stop along the way. At the end, you will be offered hot berry juice, tea or coffee, and traditional cookies.
Evening / Searching for Auroras on Snowmobiles, 4.5 hours
159 € / adult / 2 pax per snowmobile*
219 € / adult / 1 pax per snowmobile*
99 € / child 4-14 y. in sledge**
Driving through the dark landscapes is an awesome experience itself but if the sky is clear and you are lucky, you can experience the beautiful show of northern lights, a star-studded sky or the mystical full moon. Our goal is a wilderness camp at a location where you will have a clear outlook on the northern sky. Good stories, a tasty snack, and hot beverages are guaranteed even if the auroras fail us tonight.
* Only a person possessing a valid driving license is allowed to drive a snowmobile.
** Children under 140 cm may participate in the main safari in a sledge only. Taller children may be allowed to travel as a passenger on a snowmobile provided they are strong enough to hold on tight (to be defined by the guide upon departure, full price applies).
